I’m Not Like A Regular Mom. I’m A Cool Mom.
Some people feel done with high school when they hang up their graduation caps. Others act as if they have never left. Amy Poehler, Regina’s mom, and a perfect former example are pathetic. She holds on to her youth like an enslaved barnacle. She is as funny and desperate as she can be. Mrs. George earned her excellent mom status by serving fluorescent mocktails for the Plastics (alcohol optional) and allowing her youngest daughter to imitate a Girls Gone Wild clip.
Most notably, Mrs. George has memorized the Plastics’ risqué choreography to “Jingle Bell Rock,” which she performs in the aisles of the Winter Talent Show. Mrs. George is a “cool mom,” meaning she’s always sixteen, and happy hour runs from four to six.
That Is The Ugliest Effing Skirt I’ve Ever Seen.
Regina is allowed to continue her reign of terror for so long. Because she is sweeter than a Disney princess on the outside, she keeps her Cruella side behind closed doors. Regina’s pleasant exterior initially makes Cady feel like she is a snowflake, but then she starts spending real time with her.
Regina compliments a girl’s skirt at school. Regina compliments a girl’s dress as soon as she is out of her earshot. Cady then recalls a similar interaction about her bracelet. Regina’s name would be Two-Face if she were a comic-book villain. Is that correct?
That’s Why Her Hair Is So Big. It’s Full Of Secrets.
Janis and Damian, also known as “art freaks,” are Cady’s North Shore High safari guide. This involves familiarizing Cady with local predators, the Plastics. Each Plastic has its unique commentary. Janis’s is full of abuse, Damian’s dry and witty. This is the best description of Gretchen Wieners, a petite busybody.
Mean Girls is full of irony. Janis and Damian hate the Plastics but cannot stop obsessing over them. Gretchen, on the other hand, has everything. Her father invented Toaster Strudel. But she is always insecure and paranoid about losing it all. Gretchen is like a safety vest collecting dirt on everyone and everything. It gives Gretchen supermodel hair.
Don’t Have Sex. Because You Will Get Pregnant And Die.
Although the film is primarily about the mean girls, it cannot resist taking some shots at the lunacy of high school sex education. These programs seem to have the goal of scaring teenagers into quitting sex. These programs often include graphic photos and horror stories about pregnancy.
Coach Carr is busy with other classes, so Mean Girls has to stop short courses. Although it would be hilarious, sex-ed can be summarized in this famous line. Although Coach Carr doesn’t know how to spell “chlamydia,” he knows that none of these scare tactics work. He ends the class by giving out condoms.
We Should Totally Just Stab Caesar!
Cady, the “Girl World” or the world of plastics, tells us that all fighting must be done sneakily. No matter how cruelly treated they are, girls can’t express any feelings of discontent with their friends. Gretchen enjoys being Regina’s primary lady-in-waiting. But Regina’s growing nastiness starts to take its toll.
Gretchen is unable to stand for her rights. Gretchen vents her frustration on her English report. This metaphor is a thinly disguised one. Gretchen is the “just as cute” Brutus, and Regina the tyrannical Caesar. Only in Girl World could Caesar and Brutus have BFF Necklaces.
One Time, She Punched Me In The Face. It Was Awesome!
Damian states, “If North Shore were Us Weekly [the Plastics], then they would always be on the cover.” Although everyone hates the Plastics inwardly, they are adored by the masses outwardly. Regina George prefers to be physically attacked by stargazers on North Shore and Bethany.
Bethany isn’t the only one who is captivated by the Plastics. Every clique of students, and even some teachers, talk about the Plastics as if they were Hollywood stars. These abused admirers nominate many of the Plastics for Spring Fling Queen. This is why it’s so satisfying to see Regina get destroyed by a bus. She lives but proves that karma can be the ultimate Queen Bee.
That Is So Fetch.
Gretchen wants to be Regina’s clone, but a part of her still longs to be free from her dictator. She invented the term “fetch,” insisting that it is “like, slang from England.” With the subtlety and grace of a dancing bear, she tries to include it in every conversation.
Regina soon gets tired of the term “fetch,” so she rips into Gretchen and rudely declares that “fetch will never happen.” Gretchen would have the last laugh as the time is now a part of pop culture. While Her father may have made toaster Strudel, Gretchen made it possible.
You Can’t Sit With Us!
The ultimate social kiss of doom. Gretchen is Regina’s most beloved friend, but Gretchen often knocks down Regina. Gretchen will throw Regina away like yesterday’s cheese fries. This reveals the true nature and lack thereof of the Plastics’ friendship.
Regina gains a few extra pounds after being sabotaged and made to wear sweatpants. This is against Girl World rules that sweatpants can only be worn on Fridays. Real friends will be open to each other regardless of their size or weight. This line is hilarious because Gretchen delivers it with a screechy delivery and because it demonstrates what it means to have a mean girl.
On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink.
This rule is probably the most famous of all the Girl World rules. It’s perhaps because it’s one of the most absurd. This becomes comedy gold when Cady, a non-girly girl, searches for pink clothes. She must accept swimming in Damian’s extra-large baby pink polo. These rules show that Plastics are sheeple just like everyone else.
The rules for the uninformed are: “You cannot wear a tank top twice in one week.” Your hair can only be pulled back in a ponytail for one week. On Fridays, we only wear track pants or jeans. Don’t even consider wearing a vest.
Boo, You Whore.
The Plastics may be a sacrificial bunch, but they do not always treat each other with respect. Regina’s gem comes in handy when Karen fakes a cold to avoid spending time with Regina. It’s brilliant for Karen because Regina just confirmed that she has been calling Karen a slut behind the back.
